“Hey PoP,

I know you often post cool city signs and I saw this ridiculously cool one on a site I often search for old picture of DC ( Apparently 1727 7th Street NW used to be the “Happy News Cafe” back in 1933. Thought this was pretty cool. May not be new info, but it’s new to me.

I also like the caption under the picture.

And if you want to see the inside of the place, it’s here –

Very cool!
